Norma Dilenia's story

The youthful Norma, an enterprising, honest, responsible, and serious person, lives with her son in a community in the south of Honduras. Her business is buying and selling decorative hair products, something she has done for 3 years now. Norma's business is located in a market in her community. This activity accounts for the majority of her income. She needs a loan to purchase all types of hair clips, headbands, combs, pig tails, brushes, decorative combs, etc., to sell. Norma hopes that her business will grow from increased sales, since she will have more merchandise to offer her customers. And she believes this will improve the economic situation of her family somewhat. Norma also hopes that in the short term, her business will continue growing and be consolidated, becoming the best known in the zone, thus continuing to help her family.
